• Anna Nicole Smith's estate loses bid for millions

    Updated: 1 hr ago

    SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — The estate of Anna Nicole Smith has failed in its final bid to obtain her late husband's money, seven years after the death of the Playboy model and reality TV star. A federal judge in Orange County on Monday rejected the effort to obtain about $44 million from the estate of Texas billionaire J. Howard Marshall, whom Smith married in 1994 when he was 89 and she was 26. The oil tycoon died the next year. His will left his $1.6 billion estate to his son and nothing to Smith. Smith, under her real name of Vickie Lynn Marshall, challenged the will, claiming that her husband promised to leave her more than $300 million above the cash and gifts showered on her during their 14-month marriage.

    Updated: 6 hr ago

    KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — A lawyer for convicted Jamaican reggae star Buju Banton said Tuesday that a U.S. federal appellate court agreed to a new hearing on his latest appeal. The Grammy-winning singer is serving a 10-year sentence for convictions on cocaine conspiracy and trafficking charges stemming from a 2009 arrest that followed a sting operation.

  • Q&A: How 1 US factory owner fought cheap imports

    Updated: 7 hr ago

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Much of U.S. manufacturing has been decimated in the past decade by less expensive imports from China, but it didn't necessarily have to be that way, according to a compelling new book by journalist Beth Macy. Macy's book, "Factory Man," tells the story of one manufacturer who fought back. John Bassett III, a wealthy scion of a furniture dynasty in southwestern Virginia, responded to a flood of overseas goods by modernizing his factory and restructuring its products. More controversially, he successfully petitioned the U.S. government for protective tariffs on imported Chinese furniture, alienating many of his retailer customers. Those efforts kept his company, Vaughan-Bassett, in business.

  • Don Pardo: a link to TV's birth, says 'SNL' boss

    Updated: 7 hr ago

    NEW YORK (AP) — Don Pardo was a timeless classic, and in selecting him as the announcer for the brand-new "Saturday Night Live," Lorne Michaels must have known it. "When they gave me a list of NBC staff announcers and I saw his name, there was no hesitation," Michaels, who remains "SNL" executive producer, recalled on Tuesday. On Monday, Pardo died at age 96, having served as an "SNL" mainstay and through-line from its debut in October 1975 up through the close of its 39th season in May (apart from a year in the early 1980s when the show, under short-lived different management, rudely sidelined him). Michaels, just 30 when "SNL" premiered, masterminded a brash, counter-culture brand of comedy show.

The sheriff's department says Kobe fell to the ground, striking his head on the concrete. The Wayne teen was at the concert with his father. He's been released pending the completion of an investigation.

    Everyone drop everything! We need two competing Jungle Book movies, apparently. So when Disney picked up Golden Globe-winning Luther star Idris Elba to voice Shere Khan in their adaption of Rudyard Kipling's classic tale, Warner Bros. needed to come out strong with a celebrated actor of their own to voice the man-eating tiger. Enter, Sherlock star and the Internet’s favorite actor, Benedict Cumberbatch! How did this happen? Both of those casting choices are so perfect and that's the problem! You can't honestly go see BOTH of these movies, right? People will laugh at you. That's why we are breaking down what both of these powerhouses bring to the role, so that you can make an informed decision about which tiger you want to w
